New Home For The Alligators At The Tulsa Zoo

The Tulsa Zoo has a new reptile display.

The Cajun's Bayou exhibit is the home to a couple of happy gators, Cajun and Big Mama. A grant from Microsoft helped pay for the exhibit.

Zookeepers say the realistic swamp-like environment helps the creatures feel more at home. Tulsa Zoo director Stephen Walker: “they have these great big smiles on their faces. If you know these alligators you can tell they are so happy out here sunbathing at their leisure and they have a new pool in a really nice big expanded area, nice grassy. They can get in the shade if they want to its just wonderful for them.”

The exhibit opens at 9 AM Saturday. From Saturday through the 4th, you'll get in half price if you wear red, white and blue.
